Sedans have two missions. First, they’re designed to transfer people and things about with a ride that’s smooth as silk. Second, they keep commuters and belongings in their own clearly defined locations. With compact sedans like the 2019 Honda Civic sedan, there’s an additional emphasis on fuel savings. Although the Civic does a first-rate job on holding down gas usage, it accomplishes it without wedging either people or possessions into tight spaces. Best of all, it fulfills its goals with a commitment to safety that’s earned it the highest safety ratings in all crash test categories from both the IIHS and NHTSA.
What’s New for 2019?
The accolades and high customer satisfaction mean the basic design of the 2019 Honda Civic sedan remains unchanged from the previous year. But this design has had a couple of things added to it. First, the lineup gets a new sibling in the form of the Civic Sport model that relies on the 2-liter standard engine while giving the vehicle a sporty look by adding features like a rear spoiler outside and sport pedals inside. This model, along with all the models in the Civic family, also gets the Honda Sensing package. The sensing package equips the Civic with capabilities like front collision detection with automated braking, lane departure alert with automated corrective capability, and adaptive cruise control. The Civic’s Honda Sensing package has been rated by the IIHS as Superior.
The 2019 Honda Civic gives buyers a choice of two engines that are surprisingly similar in mileage despite different features. The more popular option, a 1.5-liter turbrocharged inline-4, fires off 174 horsepower for quick maneuvering through traffic while presenting the top efficiency in the lineup of 32 mpg city and 42 mpg highway when connected to a continuously variable transmission or CVT. The more modestly priced Civic models come with a more conventional block in the 2-liter straight-4 alternative that manufactures 158 horsepower with 31 mpg city and 40 mpg highway when tied to the aforementioned CVT. Folks wanting direct control of their gear ratios can select this engine teamed with a 6-speed manual transmission that few other competitors offer these days.
There are five ways to experience the 2019 Honda Civic sedan with the LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring editions. All models utilize the same dimensions that yield plenty of room for both humans and cargo. Up front, there are 39.3 inches overhead and 42.3 inches for stretching legs out. The addition of a moonroof lowers headroom by just a couple of inches. Second-tier riders will enjoy 37.1 inches of overhead clearance and 37.4 inches for their legs. Packing merchandise in the trunk is particularly easy with a yawning 15.1 cubic feet of space available in most editions. With flexible fold-down rear seat backs, storage can be expanded.
The Civic LX
The 2019 Honda Civic sedan LX tries to stay modest, but there are too many goods things to put inside. Inside the engine compartment, the LX relies on the 2-liter powerplant to get things going. For passengers, amenities like air conditioning and AM/FM sound with four speakers powered by 160 watts await. Audio operations are performed through the 5-inch touchscreen incorporated into the dashboard that’s also Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto capable. Like the other Civic sedans, the LX includes both Honda Sensing and basic safety such as airbags, traction and stability control, antilock brakes, and a rear view camera that provides multi-angle views with guidelines for better determination of object location when backing the vehicle up.
The Civic Sport
In keeping with its sporty theme, the 2019 Honda Civic sedan Sport offers owners the option of a manual transmission as well as the CVT, but keep in mind that the CVT does include paddle shifters for a similar experience. The Sport edition also upgrades the touchscreen to a 7-inch version. A leather-wrapped steering wheel and push-button starting complete the Civic Sport offerings.
The Civic EX
The 2019 Honda Civic sedan EX introduces the 1.5-liter turbocharged block, but it doesn’t stop there. Drivers can enjoy automated seat positioning in one of eight selections, and the front seats become heated. They can also bask in the light streaming in through a power moonroof. If all that sunlight makes things a bit warm, dual-zone climate control will take care of it. For an extra measure of security, the EX comes with a blind spot monitor mounted on the passenger-side mirror.
The Civic EX-L
The 2019 Honda Civic sedan EX-L goes from a leather-wrapped steering wheel to leather upholstering for the seats. Enhancing entertainment is the inclusion of SiriusXM radio to the sound system. Once behind the wheel, keeping an eye on the surroundings becomes easier with heated side mirrors.
The Civic Touring Edition
With everything the other Civic models have to offer, the 2019 Honda Civic sedan Touring edition has its work cut out for it in topping them. One way it does this is with nine speakers and a subwoofer energized by 450 watts. Another way is by tossing in LED headlights. The Touring model also extends heating to rear seats while equipping the front passenger seat with four motorized comfort positions. Getting around in the Civic Touring is improved by the Honda Satellite-linked Navigation System, but the addition of rain-sensing windshield wipers also help.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Honda Civic
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Honda Civic invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates, incentives & options invoice pricing at here.)
Note: All Honda Civic MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
